Agreeing to welcome a pet into the family is a big decision, and depending on how responsible your children are, bringing an animal into the home may have to wait another few years. For parents whose kids just won't quit pleading for a four-legged friend, this therapeutic Qoobo Cushioned Robot ($116) might hold your little ones over for a few months.
Equipped with a moving tail and supersoft fur, this robot looks and acts like a cat without any of the responsibilities of caring for a real one — so your children can go wild. Added bonus: it comes in two colors, husky gray and French brown. Scroll through to get a look at this off-the-wall product, and try not to order one ASAP.
